How To Get Jenna Ortega's Wednesday Looks For Less
When Wednesday first premiered on Netflix, we were more than excited to witness the first Latina actress to play the iconic member of the Addams family making history, but what we weren't expecting was that now, we want everything in her closet.
While Christina Ricci and Lisa Loring wore almost identical dresses in their roles as Wednesday during the 1990s and 1960s, Jenna Ortega is showing us another side of her style at Nevermore Academy.
Apart from her striped uniform, we see Ortega wearing a series of mainly black ensembles, sometimes accessorized with a touch of white, that perfectly fit her dark vibe while radiating an air of 2022 cool girl chic.
One thing that immediately stood out to us was the personal touch to her uniform: the chunky loafers she wears in every episode.
According to the show's costume designer, Colleen Atwood, the shoes are none other than Prada's Monolith loafers.
The bad news? They'll cost you a pretty penny at over $1,000. Thankfully, there are plenty of similar styles you can get your hands on for under $100.

Next, let's talk about the stunning sweaters we see her in during her off time.
The Mexican American actress was actually wearing quite a few more accessible pieces, including a checkerboard piece from Zara.
Unfortunately, many are now out of stock, but we still found a few similar styles online.

And what about the gorgeous dress she wears to the Rave'N dance?
The original is, like the loafers, a designer piece from Alaïa's Fall 2020 collection, but we recommend purchasing a matching sheer top and tulle skirt to get a similar look, plus the ability to mix and match.

To top it all off, dark eye makeup is a must.
Wednesday doesn't wear much, except during the dance where she dons a smokey eye, but close-ups reveal her everyday look is a touch of eyeliner, mascara (making sure to emphasize the bottom lashes) and a light wash of a plum-colored lip balm.
For a look under $25, we recommend NYX Epic Smoke Liner ($11), Essence Lash Princess False Lash Mascara ($4.99) and ColourPop's Blotted Lip in shade Doheny Dr ($8).
As for her freckles, you get the exact same product on-set MUA Tara McDonald used to accentuate Ortega's natural ones for just $15– Lime Crime's Freckle Pen in shade Mocha.
